So the sowing begins

veg row markers

Next step in our “eat from the garden” journey has begun. Both our raised beds are now prepared. I’ve moved four lavender plants that have outgrown the space. They are now lining the path leading up to the front door. Pup has tried to dig up one, so I’m not sure if they will survive.

The rest of the preparation was completed by the two girls. They weeded and raked.

They worked as a team.

Somehow it only seemed right that they sowed the first seeds. In fact, all the seeds.

At this rate, I’ll be able to leave it all to them and sit back and enjoy the harvest. Here’s hoping.

In the meantime, I’m linking up with #CountryKids.

    I’d really like to get a couple of raised beds in, but we don’t really have the space in our current garden… Good luck with all your veg 🙂 #CountryKids

    Makes me so miss the veg garden I planted with the kids when we were in UK. It’s wonderful getting children involved with growing a garden. #countrykids

    Lovely photos and it looks like you have two girls there very keen on a bit of gardening. I look forward to seeing how their plot develops over the coming months. Our interest tends to diminish over the tending process and the results are then less than ideal, may be this will be our year to see the process through too we might grow tomatoes instead of leaves for a change!

    I wish we had the space for some raised beds. We’re growing our veg in big pots on the patio at the moment 🙂 Lovely to see your girls enjoying the gardening x

    What brilliant young gardeners you have there – and I love their marker stones! Here’s hoping everything grows well for you.

    You have great helpers there. Don’t think my kids were as much help in the garden for us?!
    Love your stone labels, that’s a great idea!
    Thanks for sharing #LetKidsBeKids
